Oteil Burbridge joined the Allman Brothers Band in 1997 and remained with the group through their final gigs in 2014. Burbridge who is now on the road with Dead & Company, took some time yesterday to reflect on the passing of Gregg Allman. Burbridge, who also mourned the passing of Col. Bruce Hampton earlier this month, shared his thoughts on Instagram:

Our musical family has suffered another huge loss with the passing of Gregg. Again it has all happened so fast. And much too soon. His songs never got old. You didn’t outgrow his songs, you grew into them more fully. It’s a rare occurrence. Every single time I played “Cross To Bear” it felt better than the first time. He had many other songs that made me feel the same way. The back of my neck would tingle. Gregg played as many shows as he was physically able to before he left us. It defines him. The road does indeed go on forever. He can travel faster than the speed of light now. I wish you peace and the end of all restlessness Gregg.
